United States of America v. Rodger Edmonds, Appellant, 84 F.3d 1453 (D.C. Cir. 1996)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit - 84 F.3d 1453 (D.C. Cir. 1996) April 27, 1996

Before: WILLIAMS, RANDOLPH, and TATEL, Circuit Judges



Upon consideration of appellant's response to the court's order to show cause issued on March 8, 1995, it is

ORDERED that the order to show cause be discharged. The Clerk is directed to file the lodged response. It is

FURTHER ORDERED that the district court's order filed December 15, 1994, denying 28 U.S.C. § 2255 relief, be summarily affirmed for the reasons stated therein. The merits of the parties' positions are so clear as to warrant summary action. See Taxpayers Watchdog, Inc. v. Stanley, 819 F.2d 294, 297 (D.C. Cir. 1987) (per curiam); Walker v. Washington, 627 F.2d 541, 545 (D.C. Cir.) (per curiam), cert. denied, 449 U.S. 994 (1980). Moreover, the record does not support Edmonds' newly raised claims of judicial bias or prosecutorial misconduct.

The Clerk is directed to withhold issuance of the mandate herein until seven days after disposition of any timely petition for rehearing. See D.C. Cir. Rule 41.
